I was up at about 7am on my Monday in Malaysia, 21 Mar 2022. I had been thinking about Fei the night before as it's about 10 days after I chatted online with her where I was informed.. "Due date is 3/21/22 but who knows what that means! Will expect her anywhere from mid-March to early April."
I wanted to message her before I went to bed the night before but it would be too early in her morning in LA to respond so I waited till morning and messaged Christopher first as he should be more available if she was in labor! Then I checked her messenger and saw her message below:
Well I interpreted 'Social Media' as Facebook and not my blog journal unless I share it there so I started this post to give a link to my senior family members who are not in Social Media or active like I am!
Got this later sent by Papa with the note, "Getting everyone tucked in for their first night together" and my reply was "Sweet!"
Two more pics came later and that's when my tears of joy started flowing uncontrollably!
Here is Christopher's photo with Prairie shared on Facebook to be informed by Fei I can now publicly share this journal today dated 22 Mar 2022 in Malaysia!
MrOPT.Me just works too fast in the social media world as one who started blogging in 2005 due to the mother of this baby noted here.

With all the excitement of welcoming Prairie, only by end of the day, after posting all of the above, I get a spiritual prompting that I must not forget that Grandma had a spiritual part to play in this whole event! Check here for details.

Ray the youngest in our family will be one of the first, as Su & Han, are also heading to Los Angeles to meet Prairie!
At the Singapore Changi airport: Farewell and all the best to Ray heading to BYU Idaho for his university program, from Family & Friends!
Arrived safely at Los Angeles Airport to be with Su in the pic!
He was one of the early ones to get to carry Prarie in the family, the first being Su Min flying in from Boston!

Being Saturday, my named 'Adventure day' to sort & organize my collection of photographs that support my journals covering a period since I was born and even before, to be shared soon as I organize my photo collections.
Prairie is growing up Super fast!
This journal of her birth has a link found at the bottom of a journal of her oldest cousin Leah here.
Happy Birthday Mama Fei
14 June 2022 USA time
I picked this pic shared on 13 June on Fei's Facebook to be shared today of 14 June 2022 USA date to wish her "Happy Birthday Mama Fei!"
That sounds so good to me and I'm sure to her too. Prairie is indeed a special baby recorded in my journal here. Note that it was Fei who got me to start journaling over 40 years ago!
I've benefited so much from writing journals that have a different effect or purpose from making Facebook posts in our modern time. I get to dive deep into my feelings and with the use of links like this one, I could get closer to solving the mystery of Human Consciousness as I used links all over my journals to connect to my research data collected in the past 10 years.
I didn't realize journaling could bring me this far in the development of my own consciousness to strive for optimal or best I can do always. Fei has certainly outdone herself and this birthday is a real milestone for her and myself too personally in my Human Consciousness research! I am ever grateful to Fei who is really the big sister/mother to the rest of her siblings when their talented and capable Mom passed away.
A belated picture-perfect birthday celebration!
Happy Birthday Ern

Seeing them in the park with Gadget made me wonder if it was the same dog park near their home when I visited LA in the year 2013 recorded in this journal. Answer I received is no.

Happy 25th Birthday Ray
Saw the boys in KL in January just before the Pandemic started in March 2020. See how Ray became the tallest in the family?
He arrived in Los Angeles on April 3rd of early 2022 to be met by his 2nd sister because...
... 1st sister had just given birth to Prairie who is already 9 months old on his birthday today seen in a very recent pic on the US Halloween day below.
Just before the Pandemic too in Dec 2019, Fei did come to KL with Christopher before the boys came from Singapore in January to be our last physical contact before we all got locked-down!
